A compact SUV is ideal for families because of its performance and versatility. However, of the most important components customers look at when it comes to family vehicles is safety. The Honda CR-V features smart airbags that deploy at different levels of force or will not deploy at all to ensure optimal protection for all passengers based on their size. The 2014 Forester does not offer smart airbag technology, which means the airbags will deploy at full force every time, potentially leading to injury.

If you are looking for power, you will find it with the 2014 Honda CR-V. This vehicle’s 2.4L DOHC 4-clyinder engine delivers 185 hp compared to the 170 hp generated by the standard 2.5L SOHC 4-cylinder engine found on the 2014 Forester 2.5i. The 2014 Honda CR-V also provides drivers with more cargo space than the Forester.
